This guy is so snake-like.

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday addressed news coverage and criticism regarding his wife’s decision to return to teaching at a Virginia elementary school that explicitly bars LGBTQ employees and students.

“My wife and I have been in the public eye for quite a while, we’re used to the criticism,” Pence said in an interview with EWTN, a cable network that offers “news from a Catholic perspective.” But, he added, “to see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive to us.”

“We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education, and frankly religious education broadly defined,” he continued. “We’ll let the other critics roll off our back, but this criticism of Christian education in America should stop.”

Yeah, it is not “Christian education” that is being criticized here, though I personally have concerns about any indoctrination of young children, it is the hateful targeting of LGBTQ children that most people find deeply troubling. 

Whether Mike Pence and his wife like it or not there are LGBTQ people, brown people, and non-Christian people living in this country. 

And I personally am “deeply offended” that Mike Pence and his wife believe that somebody should be denied an educational opportunity based solely on who they love.
